In a world where pads have taken over and replaced the traditional magazine, newspaper, and book, we shouldn’t forget the bliss of actually opening a new book, smelling the print, and enjoying flipping through actual paper. The Salon du Livre Francophone de Beyrouth has come just in time this year, to remind us of how much we used to love holding an actual book in our hands.
Since 1992, the Salon du Livre has been an unmissable event by the Lebanese Francophone, and has positioned itself as a leading cultural event that everyone looks forward to every year. This year the event is set to be extra special, since the Salon du Livre celebrates its 20 years in Beyrouth! The best books, one of the best poets Salah Stéité, discussion about blogs, literature, conferences, movies, concerts, art, … In a few words, the “it” cultural event of the year that will transport us to a world of dreams and splendor!
The Salon du Livre Francophon de Beyrouth will take place from October 26th till November 4th 2012. For more info: http://www.salondulivrebeyrouth.org/
